Once again, Carl Schalk displays his consummate skill by weaving together an unforgettable new tune with a text from Susan Palo Cherwien's hymn collection, O Blessed Spring. Based on Luke 24: 13-35, the poignant text is set to a soaring melody to create an unpretentious, winning arrangement. This piece fills the need for effortless choral music on the Sundays after Easter. As one of Augsburg Fortress' best-selling composers, Schalk's other titles, "Before the Marvel of This Night," and "As the Dark Awaits the Dawn," are definitely worth trying.
